HUDSON — Officers from the Hudson Police Department were hailed for their quick response and lifesaving actions after a male subject caused a disturbance and injured himself early Saturday morning.
Police Chief Richard DiPersio reported that the department received multiple 9-1-1 calls around 2:00 a.m. on Jan. 27 involving a male subject attempting to fight people and damaging vehicles on Main Street.
Officers Heather Manning, Calvin Ahearn, and Chris LaDou of the midwatch patrol shift arrived at 176 Main Street to find the 22-year-old man with a deep laceration on his forearm and additional cuts on his shoulder and bicep.
The injured man, who had been seen punching vehicle windows, was lying on the ground in a pool of blood.
The officers provided immediate medical attention, applying a tourniquet to the man’s arm to stop the bleeding.
Chief DiPersio commended the officers, stating, “It is clear to me the quick response and actions by these officers helped save this individual’s life, and I commend them for that.”
The investigation concluded the man had punched the window of a vehicle he did not own, resulting in his injuries.
He will face criminal charges for property destruction.
